Stayed here after Avon 39 the walk to end breast cancer. The property is pretty, nice clean rooms, reasonably priced. There is a restaurant but we didn't eat there. There is not a complimentary breakfast. The pool and hot tub are both small and are not next to each other. The hot tub is on the side of the building...

The Hotel has a good location as it is 10 miles from Santa Barbara, less than 20 from Ventura and is less than a mile from a very nice beach with a mountian backdrop. The hotel itself is an older but well maintained property with an elegant couryard area. When we noticed the lobby did not have coffee or tea...

We had to move room 3 times due to the smell of "skunk" we had stayed here 5 years previous and had enjoyed it. The place has become outdated and takes large tourists groups. One particular night we had to call the front desk about a raging party of British from a motor coach tour. The sheriffs department showed up....

What a great little Best Western. The staff were great and the hotel was unique and quite pretty at night. It had an amazing little courtyard which was great scenery at breakfast and in the evening with the lights lite up. The restaurant there had great food, service and it was actually surprisingly cheap. We wished we had gotten there...

We had a very quiet ground floor (courtyard room) away from the street and elevator. Nice updating from a few years ago. Excellent service by the staff. The room was clean and we appreciated the tiny courtyard patio for morning coffee. Unfortunately there is no "free" or built into the price breakfast, unlike many other Best Western Plus hotels. We...

I was pleasantly surprised at the nice interior of the hotel. The courtyard was very relaxing and quiet. Which was surprising since it is close to the freeway. Our room was very quiet as well. Would stay here again if passing through the area.

I have reported on this location before and have to reiterate! A beautiful stopover or vacation stay just off Hwy 101. Within walking distance of the "safest beach in the world!", downtown and all amenities, the Hotel has reasonable prices, a nice bar (!) and very friendly and competend staff. The stay is a pleasure. I'll be stayng there again!

Room smelled musty and dirty. Shortly after we discovered the fridge was leaking water everywhere. The bathroom had black hair in the shower from the previous guest. We moved rooms and the new room was just as funky. The website describes this location as "waterfront" but it's a 25 minute walk. But what's MOSTLY irritating is the unprofessional staff. I...

We stayed here on the way to San Francisco for our honeymoon booked it because of the price and location. When we got there check in was smooth and the front desk woman was very nice and personable. The exterior of the hotel was well taken care of very green and garden like and well taken care of. Our room...

There's not much to say about this hotel except the staff was very pleasant and well organized. It was the spring break college visit rush time of the year and they handled the check-ins very efficiently.
